We supply flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three types: one-piece reliable, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split design supplies solutions for applications with exclusive requirements in which modest shaft separations inhibit the installation of a one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter on the sleeve engage with teeth on the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are desired to connect the flanges with all the versatile sleeve which securely lock collectively underneath torque for smooth transmission of power
Torque is transmitted by means of shear loading in the sleeve
All 3 sleeve products are highly elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to guard connected products from harmful shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Forms
These sleeves attribute a one-piece design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Varieties, the one-piece design is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Sorts
These sleeves characteristic a two-piece layout with retaining ring. The E Type is molded in EPDM rubber and the N Type is molded in Neoprene. The two-piece layout is ideal for applications in which there is difficulty in separating the shafts from the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves feature both a one-piece sound (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit energy for high torque applications. Because on the layout and the properties on the Hytrel molded sleeve, the H and HS sleeves should not be used as direct replacements for EPDM or Neoprene sleeves, and can only be used with S, TF, or SC flanges.
Sleeve Materials
EPDM ?§C Unless otherwise specified, S-Flex couplings are supplied with EPDM versatile sleeves. EPDM has good resistance to commonly used chemicals and is generally not affected by dirt or moisture. Color is black.
NEOPRENE ?§C Neoprene offers very good performance characteristics for most applications and offers a very good resistance to chemical and oil conditions. Color is black with a green dot.
HYTREL ?§C Hytrel is a polyester elastomer designed for high torque and high temperature applications and offers excellent resistance to chemical and oil conditions. Color is orange.
